Opening to the World
Faced with the three poisons at work in the world, political response is insufficient.
There exists however, in the heart of every human being an aspiration to a more just world. The Way of Zen responds to this aspiration.
A new society must emerge, where every form of life is respected,
where individualism recedes, leaving room for mutual support and sharing.
Everyone of us is responsible for the state of the world. As such, the Way is a practice: the practice of awakening,
in which everyone turns their gaze inward, to see and to free themselves from the three poisons.
Through this practice, we reach true compassion and wisdom,
critical given the state of the world. Thus we help all existences.
